For my mom's 50th birthday, I wanted to make her something really cool... so I did. :) Studio Calico had a banner project kit as an add-on last month, which made this really easy to put together. The Maya Road canvas banner album was the base, with some additional canvas included to add photos using HP Iron-on Transfer Paper. The kit included a few pieces of fabric to make some fabric flowers, some of the new Making Memories felt embellishments and ribbon for connecting everything. I used some Heidi Grace chipboard alphas backed with cardstock to spell out "Henny", my daughter's name for her. It really was quite fun to make and came together quickly. I also sprayed the banners with Cream Maya Mist first for a fun look. Maya Mist is my new obsession. I'm lovin' it more than Glimmer Mist for it's bolder color and coverage. It also doesn't curl the paper- a huge plus in my book!
I'm working with one of the new Cosmo Cricket lines for next month... Material Girl. So, so cute! I love Cosmo for their fun strips and card sheets that give you a ton of options. I've got lots of ideas for layouts for this line, so keep watching!
